That's pretty darn neat.

Wonder if it would stay cool enough with that little radiator?

While it looks cool, im betting the engine spins gobs more rpm than the trans is rated for, not to mention, the poor low end torque, and lack of a governor would make low speed usless.

Bet it would pull the snot out a sled at a tractor pull tho!

He talks about a gearbox between the engine and trans, so maybe it's geared down so it doesn't over drive the hydro, which is rated at about 4krpms max. . I bet it would go through a lot of fuel!

Think that is same guy that had some at Portland show?  Nice work on them. I don't get how they get from the engine cranks or flywheels to the drives on tractor?  You can't see that work when looking at them. Clutches if needed?   Maybe all hydros, so easier there.  ON that Ski-doo one, too bad he used a patio tractor unless that is just paint, not really a patio?  Was wondering about the engine running fast too, and aren't they water cooled?  Thinking it would need source for that?  or can it just be sealed system?  Was thinking Sea-do takes in lake water?  Again, what kind of output on the engine to go to the trans???

First thing I thought was boy I hope thats not a true patio tractor.  I am not a Deere guy but that wouldn't be right.

That's a pretty wild and truly non-typical engine swap for a garden tractor, but pretty cool nonetheless.
